BUSINESS FORMATION

The Affinity Law Group assists clients in Honolulu and throughout Hawaii in forming new businesses. When starting a new business, one of the most significant decisions you must make is determining the type of business entity structure to employ. The decision you make can have significant tax and legal liability implications for your business. Hawaii law provides several options, and the attorneys at The Affinity Law Group will explain the differences inherent in each option in clear and understandable terms and work with you to determine the appropriate type of entity for your new business venture.

Our attorneys assist clients in forming:

  • Corporations (including S-corporations and C-corporations)
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
  • General partnerships
  • Limited partnerships
  • Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs)

After determining the best type of entity for your new business venture, the appropriate documents must be prepared and filed to register your entity with the Secretary of State. We assist you in preparing the necessary entity formation documents, including shareholder and operating agreements, purchase agreements, contracts and leases, and employee agreements, and oversee the filing of the documents with the Secretary of State.

Once a business is formed, it must be able to conduct transactions which ensure the stability and profitability of the venture. At The Affinity Law Group, our attorneys counsel our clients and strive to protect our client’s interests in every transaction. We know how to draft contracts to ensure that a business is protected if any disputes arise, and apply our knowledge and negotiation expertise to make certain that every transaction makes financial sense for a company.
